Review by Scott Yanow
Altoist Lee Konitz and drummer Matt Wilson perform 13 mostly concise free improvisations on this likable but not particularly memorable outing. Konitz has long been a melodic and mellow-toned improviser, even at his freest. His playing always sounds logical and purposeful, even in this sparse setting. Wilson is very much in the background most of the time, offering quiet and occasionally inaudible support. The music is fine but would have benefited from closer interaction between the two players and a lot more heat and fire.
